Source: Pew Center on the States

From Capitol Alert:

"The states with the lowest grades typically have trouble keeping their spending in line with their tax revenues,” Pew's Stephen C. Fehr writes in an explanation of the research. That observation applies to California, which has struggled to balance its budget for the past decade and whose current budget assumes that voters will approve sales and income tax increases in November.

By contrast, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia and Utah have each had AAA-credit ratings for 46 years or longer.
